Apple M1 Laptop. Awesome battery life. iMessage. Clean UI. Get the pro if you are rich AF. Get the long extension cable. The fucking block sucks.
Windows Desktop. Gaming + Game Development + Virtual Machines, you want to be on Windows for any beefy computational work. Second monitor. 2 monitors = 200% productive.
Mechanical Keyboard. I annoy the shit out of my roommate. You can too.
Use Google Calendar. It’s good.
Stop forgetting assignments. Use Todoist. It has a google calendar integration and natural language processing for setting reminders. You can say “math hw due every Tuesday, and Thursday at 11:59pm”. Boom, bi-weekly reminders popup on your google calendar + notifications. Customize notifications using google calendar time from the event.
Stop using the notes app. Use Obsidian. Take notes easily, draw sketches easily. Mobile/Laptop/Desktop sync. Notion without the complexity.
Stop using Chrome. Bravehas a built-in ad blocker. Built-in dark mode. I don’t want bad vision.
Use VSCode. Don’t spend hours customizing your neovim instance just to turn it into a shitty VSCode. You are not a 10x developer.
These tools suck. Make them better.
Stop using Chrome autofill. Get Bitwarden. A free password manager with sync, and simple autofill.
WSL 2 + Windows Terminal. Fuck Powershell. Fuck the command prompt. Don’t pore over the details of the distro, just use Ubuntu LTS. It’s simple. It works. I don’t need to squeeze an extra 10% perf out of my distro, and neither should you. Forward your Ubuntu GUI Apps with VcXsrv.
I don’t hate you, just your workflow. Be efficient. Go party. Watch that Netflix series. Stop doing work.
